Classes for on­line de­vices

Rutherglen Reformer - - Out And About - Edel Ke­nealy

Peo­ple who want to learn how to email, shop on­line and surf the net are be­ing in­vited to an IT class.

Classes are aimed at over 50s who may not be fa­mil­iar with tablet de­vices or Win­dows 10 and need as­sis­tance.

Dubbed Tea and Tablet, the classes are run by Light­burn El­derly As­so­ci­a­tion Project (LEAP) and have been well re­ceived in Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang.

One at­tendee said:“My daugh­ter had bought me a new iPad for Christ­mas and I didn’t have the first clue how to work it. The iPad class has taught me so much and I now feel con­fi­dent enough to do some on­line shop­ping and even down­load a new book.”

LEAP’s new block of classes, held at 197 Hamil­ton Road, Halfway, start the week be­gin­ning May 2 and run for eight weeks un­til the week be­gin­ning June 19. The timetable is as fol­lows:

Tues­days, 10am-mid­day: An­droid tablet; Tues­days, 1pm-3pm: Win­dows 10, com­puter and in­ter­net; Wed­nes­days, 10am-mid­day: iPad.

To reg­is­ter for a class call Ca­tri­ona on 0141 641 5169 or email ca­tri­ona@leap-project.co. uk. Classes cost £4 per ses­sion.
